Cholesterol ester transfer protein (CETP) deficiency or inhibition results in dramatic elevations of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels, but there has been concern that HDL might be dysfunctional in its ability to promote efflux of cholesterol from macrophage foam cells or to mediate reverse cholesterol transport. Using cholesterol-loaded cultured macrophages, HDL that was isolated from subjects with homozygous CETP deficiency or who had been treated with high levels of CETP inhibitor (120… CONTINUE READING
